Lopsided Christmas

These things always seem a little lopsided - I think it's because I'm drawing something that's only 8 inches from my face (that's where the hook is... oh, don't ask).

Still, the colors and reflections turned out well. I just need to learn how to draw a circle without a compass.

One month til Christmas!

So I thought I would draw a Christmas ornament. Perhaps I should draw one a day until Dec 25?

Or maybe not. I can see that driving me crazy. I didn't spend a lot of time on this one - I wanted to keep it sketchy, but I don't think it's sketchy enough. Perhaps I'll draw another one to see if it turns out better.

But not30 of them. I'm not a masochist.

Did you guess?

Ummmm... can you even tell now that it's finished?
It's a beaded necklace - similiar to this, but with a lot more strands. I love it, but it's really too heavy to wear, so I generally leave it hanging on my wall.
I guess there's no way you'd call that useful.
I probably futzed over it too much - I'm still deciding whether I like the effect or not.

slow progress

M. and JT. suggested that I re-install photoshop elements to see if that got rid on my constant crashing problem.

It didn't.


anyway, I started this one again, with a slightly different approach.

Can you guess what it is yet?

work in progress

... because the @#%&ing mac keeps crashing. Anyway, this will probably end up like my sneakers - done over two or three posts. Check back on Tuesday for more - hopefully by then you'll be able to tell what it is.

Wanna guess?

Seriously, that was ridiculous

It took me a whole week to upload an image (a Christmas Nutcracker decoration, in case you were wondering). I eventually had to do it from work. What's up with that?

But, hey, it wasn't an entire week of failed uploads. I now have a store on Cafe Press - some of the drawings here are on consumer items. Which, if I bought them, I would have to draw - and then I would add that drawing to another item on Cafe Press... like an infinity mirror shot, only drawn.

Who knows, maybe I could create an artist statement out of it and get a gallery show.

You know I'm thinking about it.

seriously, I have no idea what's wrong.

I will try uploading from work tomorrow. This is getting silly.

I'm not ignoring you

I just can't seem to load any images to blogger right now. I have no idea what's wrong. I'm working on it!

screen monkey!

yep, a screen monkey. It's a little stuffed animal that you can use to clean your computer screen, which is infinitly cuter than, say, a box of kleenexes.

I got him at Chapters with some of my birthday money - thanks Mom and Dad!
